Have a faulty 6581/8580 SID chip and need a replacement? The Nano SwinSIDb is a great choice (though I will admit, not best), but it has one fatal flaw: lack of paddle support. Using this revision on the original Nano SwinSIDb design, you can "piggyback" your original SID chip with a faulty audio circuit and use some of it’s secondary functions to add back in support for reading analog paddle inputs, external audio input, and random number generator while synthesizing music using the tried-and-true nano SwinSIDb circuit and firmware.
If you don’t have a faulty SID chip with working paddle inputs, you can still grab this board to restore your Commodore’s voice! Maybe someday you can pick up a faulty SID chip for cheap online to pair with it...
For more information or if you’d like to make this open hardware kit yourself, check out the project on Github and the original article that the hack was based on. If you’d like to learn more about the nano SwinSIDb, check out this tutorial by tolaemon.
